In order to help the region learn about the newest team members and to share learning, we have decided to dedicate some of our blog posts this year to a regular schedule from the IES team. And in between, we still will feature the voices from the field and experiences of our teacher leaders.
"It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" will follow the meme created by the Book Journey blog and feature what the team is reading. It might be professional reading, it might be pleasure reading, it might be a book, it might be an article. Anything goes but we will be sharing what we are reading.........and thinking about the reading!
Strategies will be the focus for Wednesday - whether it is a protocol, a math or reading strategy, classroom management or research around classroom strategies this will be the feature day! We will try to include practical applications, stories and photos/videos of the strategy in action whenever possible.
Lastly, we will feature Technology Thursday. We hold to a model of technology integration that enhances the work of the classroom teacher, not replaces it. And integration that is meaningful and purposeful. More than a new tool or tech tip - these posts will feature how the technology can be used and the impact on student learning.
